Description

(S111) Python Meets Mathematics 2 - Further Develop your Child’s Structured Thinking Process (Ages 13-16)

Taking Mathematical Simulations to the next level, students who have completed S101 will now be performing even more Monte Carlo Simulations, experimenting with Probability, and practicing statistical modelling.

This course furthers their understanding of Python (Consistently ranked #1 as the “Most Popular Coding Language"), introducing them to concepts such as Functions, Lists, and Strings. Students will be expected to apply programming to model Mathematical simulations. Improving code efficiency will play a huge part in this module.

This powerful pairing of Math and Programming not only allows your child to build a solid foundation in both but also most importantly, to understand how Math is applicable in the Real World.

Our proprietary curriculum, developed by Coding Lab’s Award-Winning team of curriculum advisors has been tested in selected MOE schools in Singapore and is based on the GCE "O" Level and "A" Level Mathematics curriculum.
